Just finished reading this after I saw you mention it here. It didn't have the humor of Ball Four but was very interesting nonetheless. Bradley's writing is very introspective and analytical, and he gives good insight into what it was like to be a pro athlete in New York. There are also some interesting stories to compare and contrast what it was like for his black teammates.
